Kenya: Geothermal Development Company Helping the Local Economy in North Region

GDC Changing Fortunes of Communities Living in The North Rift Region

Geothermal Development Company (GDC) is giving a new breath of life to thousands of North Rift region communities through provision of clean water and development of infrastructure. GDC has constructed over 100km of roads in Korosi, Paka and Silali. This has eased transport in the area and it has also opened the area which is now easily accessible.

In addition, the company has installed key water filtration points in several locations in the region, a move which will enable close to 10,000 residents and livestock access clean water.

GDC is currently carrying out exploratory drilling the North Rift region under the Baringo-Silali Geothermal Project. GDC has done infrastructural work through Kapkerwa, Chesiran, Korosi, Kading’ding, Paka, Naudo and Silali prospects.
